One of those friends who tells you stuff hoping you will make a terrible mess with it, knowingly suggested the ostensibly un-PC site, www.chickswithbricks. com which bills itself in a ghastly mega-girly white on pink copperplate font as a 'celebration of women in the built environment'. Happily for readers of a family publication it has nothing to do with site hut decorations and is actually an 'exclusive members network' for female construction representatives.

I'm sure that breaches some discrimination law or other but personally I think it's cool.

Please don't write in.

The founders are architects Pascale Scheurer and Holly Porter, who have organised the People in Space project (www.peopleinspace. com) and the new Injection Magazine which is distributed with this copy of AJ and which was launched with a piss-up last week in the Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes Bar, Shoreditch.

Can't be all bad with a venue name like that.

Their website is crisply designed, easy to navigate and, oh frabjous day, has adjustable type. Even if that were the only thing, and it isn't, you wish them well.

One question though, what is performative space?
